The Circuit de Catalunya has good facilities and an interesting blend of corners, but lacks atmosphere
Location: Montmelo, Catalonia
Date: 10 May
Length: 2.875 miles
Rating (out of 10): 7

Barcelona is one of the world's great cities - a vibrant blend of history, culture and fabulous nightlife.

Unfortunately, its Grand Prix track - half an hour north of the city - does not live up to those glories.

The Circuit de Catalunya has a good blend of corners and a long straight to help overtaking - but it lacks atmosphere and the race is often dull.

The last section of the track was changed for 2007, in an attempt to improve safety and racing.

The movie is 340k and should take no more than 2 minutes to download over a 56k modem.
